Those are some sweet graphics. Looks like quite the capable truck, with plenty of room and 80's styling.

Very cool and rare custom cab! The best year for the mini truck too. Solid front axle and EFI.

Last year for the solid front axle. The deer whistle, air raid siren? is a bit excessive.

Or conversely, first anonymous commenter, he's attempting to keep his longer-than-normal 'yota well within the parking spot, and not sticking out into the path of travel.

Who's really the jerk here?

how do you keep finding these???

i don't actually want one of these coachbuilt customs, but i completely appreciate them, think there's a good chance that they'll be collectible in the future.

wonderful sky in that profile shot. i can't imagine a more satisfying park job.

That is the most 80's coachbuilt pickup i've ever seen.

If this was for sale I would be a buyer! I have been looking for this year/combo for a while. Missed out on a similar truck near near me by a couple hours for $1950. Oh well if anyone knows of any for sale please let me know. Thanks. 505-269-6460

Justin, I think there's a rival for "most 80s coachbuilt" if you click the Hilux tag.

This one, for sure:

Those graphics and 80's American Racing wheels are something else.

The black Dodge crew-cab, in the back of photo 2, has the rear tire at the edge of the traffic lane. The Dodge has a short bed. The Toyota doesn't.

These spaces are for compact cars. Somebody has placed the curb-stop too far from the edge of the lot.
I see a Sears in the strip, what's close to the parking?
